Our Data Science course in Lausanne takes you from Data Enthusiast to Data Scientist in 9 weeks. You will be able to analyse data to make decisions, implement AI and Machine Learning models and build a practical data application ready for real-world deployment. Enter the world of Data Science as a Data Analyst, Data Engineer or Data Scientist, enhance your academic studies, solve global issues, or advance your career with our 600+ global hiring partners in industries such as marketing, finance, and commerce with a unique data skillset.
Our course in Lausanne is designed to help you learn Data Science step by step. Use data to provide actionable insights and build a real-world data application to showcase your skills.
Learn programming in Python, how to work with Jupyter Notebook and to use powerful Python libraries like Pandas and NumPy to explore and analyse big data sets. Collect data from various sources, including CSV files, SQL queries on relational databases, Google Big Query, APIs and Web scraping.
Learn how to formulate a good question and how to answer it by building the right SQL query. This module will cover schema architecture and then dive deep into the advanced manipulation of SELECT to extract useful information from a stand-alone database or using a SQL client software like DBeaver.
Make your data analyses more visual and understandable by including data visualisations in your Notebook. Learn how to plot your data frames using Python libraries such as matplotlib and seaborn and transform your data into actionable insights.
In Lausanne you will learn about the underlying math behind all the libraries and models used in the bootcamp. Become comfortable with the basic concepts of statistics & probabilities (mean, variance, random variable, Bayes’s Theorem, etc.) and with matrix computation, at the core of numerical operations in libraries like Pandas and Numpy.
You'll learn how to structure a Python repository with object-oriented programming in order to clean your code and make it re-usable, how to survive the data preparation phase of a vast dataset, and how to find and interpret meaningful statistical results based on multivariate regression models.
Data analysts are meant to communicate their findings to non-technical audiences: You will learn how to create impact by explaining your technical insights and turn them into business decisions using cost/benefits analysis. You'll be able to share your progress, present and compare your results to your teammates.
Learn how to explore, clean, and prepare your dataset through preprocessing techniques like vectorisation. Get familiar with the classic models of supervised learning - linear and logistic regressions. Learn how to solve prediction and classification tasks with the Python library scikit-learn using learning algorithms like KNN (k-nearest neighbors).
Implement training and testing phases to make sure your model can be generalised to unseen data and deployed in production with predictable accuracy. Learn how to prevent overfitting using regularization methods and how to chose the right loss function to improve your model's accuracy.
Evaluate your model's performance by defining what to optimise and the right error metrics in order to assess your business impact. Improve your model's performance with validation methods such as cross validation or hyperparameter tuning. Finally, discover a powerful supervised learning method called SVM (Support Vector Machines).
Move to unsupervised learning and implement methods like PCA for dimensionality reduction or clustering for discovering groups in a data set. Complete your toolbelt with ensemble method that combine other models to improve performance, such as Random Forest or Gradient Boosting.
Unveil the magic behind Deep Learning by understanding the architecture of neural networks (neurons, layers, stacks) and their parameters (activations, losses, optimisers). Become autonomous to build your own networks, especially to work with images, times and text, while learning the techniques and tricks that make Deep Learning work.
Go further into computer vision with Convolutional Neural Networks, architectures designed to make the most out of images. Improve your model generalisation thanks to data augmentation techniques and implement advanced methods to benefit from state-of-the-art architectures thanks to Transfer Learning methods.
Get comfortable into managing sequential data and text (sequence of words) by transforming them into appropriate inputs. Leverage the power of Recurrent Neural Networks to forecast future values and perform valuable Natural Language Processing.
Move from Jupyter Notebook to a code editor and learn how to set up a machine learning project in the right way in order to quickly and confidently iterate. Learn how to convert a machine learning model into a model with a robust and scalable pipeline with sklearn-pipeline using encoders and transformers.
Building a machine learning model from start to finish requires a lot of data preparation, experimentation, iteration, and tuning. We'll teach you how to do your feature engineering and hyperparameter tuning in order to build the best model. For this, we will leverage a library called MLflow.
Finally, we'll show you how to deploy your code and model to production. Using Google Cloud AI Platform, you'll be able to train your model at scale, package it and make it available to the world. Cherry on top, you will use a Docker environment to deploy your own RESTful Flask API which could be plugged into any front-end interface.
The final weeks of the course will culminate in the delivery of your capstone project! Working collaboratively in small teams, the project will allow you to utilise all the skills you have learned throughout the bootcamp in order to solve a real world data science problem.
Our Data Science course requires a basic level of Python & Mathematics. As we want all of our students to succeed, you'll be able to test your level and refresh your skills before the Bootcamp starts.
You'll need to be comfortable with data types & variables, conditions, loops, functions and data structures (List & Dictionary).
You'll need a High School level of Maths, meaning you will be comfortable with functions, derivatives, and systems of linear equations.
After a chat with our Admissions team, you will receive a Python & Mathematics Quiz to help you and the Admissions team better understand your current level in Python & Maths. We'll also provide you with a set of additional free learning resources to help you match the prerequisite level for the Bootcamp.
Once you have been accepted onto the Data Science Bootcamp (congrats!), you'll receive ~ 40h of online learning resources. We require all of our students to complete this before the Bootcamp starts, either at their own pace or during our Data Prep Week.
The Data Prep Week takes place the week before the official start date of the Bootcamp. This is an additional week of interactive online learning designed to help you get through this content as efficiently as possible and ensure you have the necessary foundations in Python before the bootcamp starts.
